Useful/additional information For earliest crops, sow seeds February to early March in seedtrays or pots of good seed compost at 15-20C (59-68F) under glass or in a propagator. For outdoor sowings, sow seeds March to July thinly in a prepared seedbed, 12mm (½ inch) deep, in rows 38cm (15 inches) apart. Keep well watered and cover plants with fine netting to deter birds and cabbage caterpillar attack. Transplant when large enough to handle into well prepared, firmed soil allowing 30cm (12 inches) between plants each way. For 'baby heads', Elisa can be closely spaced by about 15cm (6 inches) to produce tennis ball sized heads. Prefers an open site and a fertile, well drained soil. Harvest June to October.
